The 19-year-old young woman who was killed at her home Wednesday evening in the Maizerets district of Quebec could have been the victim of reprisals in connection with a denunciation. /p>

Sources told Radio-Canada that Daphnée Jolivet encouraged a young woman to denounce her attacker, who was a member of a street gang. According to our information, everything indicates that this denunciation could have a link with the murder.

Daphnée Jolivet was allegedly killed while she was in the basement floor of the family residence. A 16-year-old boy also suffered serious injuries during the attack. His life would now be out of danger.

On the evening of the events, the police arrested a 16-year-old young man a little further away in the neighborhood. He was inside a minivan that ended up in an apartment building. According to our information, the vehicle belonged to a member of the victim's family. This is how the police would have been led to carry out checks at her home.

The teenager was charged Friday morning with impaired driving and vehicle theft. Although he is not facing charges in connection with the murder of Daphnée Jolivet, the court has banned him from communicating with the 16-year-old victim and members of her family.

The prosecution opposed his release. He will remain in custody in a juvenile detention center.

His appearance took place in the presence of his parents, whom he avoided looking at. He glanced at them furtively before quickly turning away to head towards detention.

His case will return to the Chamber of youth next Friday, for the investigation into release.

In the meantime, the investigation into the murder and the attempted murder continues.
